Jessica

An entertainment journalist was the last thing I thought I would be doing.
I thought once I got my degree, I would be reporting on stories that made a difference, but now all I do is report on who broke up with who and who is dating who.
I was over it.
Then I got my next assignment. 

He’s Hollywood’s bad boy.
He works hard, and he plays even harder.
He’s rude, he’s condescending, and he’s made it known he doesn’t want me on the tour.

With one month on the road with him, two things might happen
One, I may never work in this industry again.
Two, I may just be like everyone else and fall for Hollywood’s Playboy.

"He's beautiful, but it's nothing new. After all, he's Hollywood's golden boy."

Hollywood Playboy is my first Natasha Madison read. IKR? I'm asking myself what took me so long to finally read an author that's been on my TBR for years. I've purchased both ebooks and paperbacks but just didn't get around to one before now. *fist to forehead*

I confess that starting the first chapter inside Jessica's head kind of had me in her court from the beginning. I saw things her way and put him in the #ArrogantAsshole category before he even had a chance to convince me otherwise. I was looking forward to seeing the sparks fly between them when they finally faced off on this tour that neither of them wanted her to participate in. But, it's her job and she's been assigned to cover the event. She tried everything she could to get out of it but was unsuccessful.

He's aware that publicity is part of the process and he must tolerate the media to be successful in his chosen profession, but he doesn't have to like it. And he especially doesn't like her. He tried to keep her from being selected as one of the chosen few, but his opinion was overridden. So, as you can imagine, the tension was thick enough to cut with a knife when she showed up. It was delicious for me, but for them...not so much.

I really enjoyed the behind the scenes look at Hollywood movie promotion and entertainment journalism. It is just as cutthroat as I've always heard it was, at least in this story. I take my hat off to her for having thick skin and being able to deal with bad behavior with a smile on her face, even when she's putting them in their place. I got all up in the middle of their business and had some very strong opinions about said bad behavior by multiple characters. I totally had her back as I was in the background cheering her on, ready to deliver wine or a shovel as needed.

I especially enjoyed meeting the character that will be starring in the next book in the series, Hollywood Princess. The line forms here...

 

 

 

 

 

When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...
